        Account of an Expedition from Pittsburgh to the Rocky Mountains, performed in the Years 1819, and '20 &under the Command of Major Stephen H. Long

      H.C. Carey & Lea, Philadelphia 1823 - Text: expertly bound to style in full tree calf, covers bordered with a gilt double fillet, flat spine in compartments divided by darker tree calf bands and gilt roll tools, lettered in the second and fourth compartments, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers. Atlas: bound to style in half tree calf over period marbled paper covered boards, spine uniform to the text First edition of one of the most important early western expeditions. Edwin James was the botanist, geologist, and surgeon for this important government expedition, initially named the Yellowstone Expedition. Led by Major Stephen Long, the expedition added significantly to the earlier discoveries of Lewis and Clark and Zebulon Pike. In addition to his duties on the expedition, James subsequently served as the editor and compiler of this text, relying "upon his own records, the brief geological notes of Major Long, and the early journals of Thomas Say [who served as the expedition's naturalist]" (Wagner-Camp). Appendices to the text comprise astronomical and meteorological tables and Indian vocabularies. In addition to Long, James and Say, the expedition included Titian Peale as draughtsman and assistant naturalist; and Samuel Seymour as landscape artist. The published plates depict Oto Indians, views of the Plains, and buffalo. Major Long was the principal proponent of government-sponsored exploration of the West following the War of 1812. He travelled farther than Pike or Lewis and Clark, and blazed trails that were susequently followed by Fremont, Powell, and others. The expedition travelled up the Missouri and then followed the River Platte to its source in the Rocky Mountains before moving south to Upper Arkansas. From there the plan was to find the source of the Red River, but when this was missed the Canadian River was explored instead. Cartographically, the atlas contains the first maps to provide detail of the Central Plains. Upon returning to Washington from the expedition, Long drafted a large manuscript map of the West (now in the National Archives) and the printed maps in James's Account closely follows. The "Western Section" map is particularly interesting as it here that the myth of the Great American Desert was founded by Long: a myth which endured for decades. The designation Great American Desert appears east of the single range of the Rocky Mountains, together with a two-line note: "The Great American Desert is frequented by roving bands of Indians who have no fixed places of residence but roam from place to place in quest of game." Long's map, along with that of Lewis and Clark, "were the progenitors of an entire class of maps of the American Transmississippi West" (Wheat).

        Bishop Burnet's History of His Own Time

      Oxford - Clarendon Press, 1823 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A bright, clean complete set of the 1823edition of Burnet's History of His Own Time. Bound in half-leather and marbled paper-covered boards, with gilt lettering and decoration. With a bookseller's label for 'W. J. Sackett' on the front pastedown. With a nameplate for 'Reginald Thornton' on the front pastedown. Gilbert Burnet, 1643 1715, was a Scottish theologian and historian, and Bishop of Salisbury. He was fluent in Dutch, French, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. Burnet was respected as a cleric, a preacher, and an academic, as well as a writer and historian. He was educated by his father, and at the University of Aberdeen, where he earned a Master of Arts in Philosophy at the age of thirteen. He earned his Doctor of Divinity by eighteen. He travelled England and Europe for several years and in 1665returned to be ordained by the Bishop of Edinburgh. In 1669 he accepted the vacant chair of Divinity at the University of Glasgow. With the unsettled political times, he left the University in 1674 and moved to London. In London, his political and religious sentiments prompted him to support the Whigs. His energetic and bustling character led him to take an active part in the controversies of the time, and he endeavoured to bring about reconciliation between Episcopacy and Presbytery. Burnets later life was marked by Kings favours, religious controversy, and a self-exile which included some time at The Hague, asWilliam IIIs personal chaplain and later a trusted advisor to Queen Mary. As the Dictionary of National Biography tells us, as an author Burnet can be reckoned as one of the most prolific and substantial of his day. In his lifetime he published more than 140 works, ranging from sermons and short polemics to major works of theology, biography, and history. More important, unlike most authors his works were rarely ignored. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. There is slight wear to the extremities, including slight bumping and rubbing. Internally the pages are bright and generally clean. There are the occasional spots, that are most prominent on the first and last few pages. There is an ink stamp on the front blank, and an ink signature on the title page, of each volume. Overall the condition is very good..

        Recherches chimiques sur les corps gras d'origine animale.

      Chez F. G. Levrault (de l'Imprimerie de Cellot),, A Paris, 1823 - In-8° (207x130mm), pp. (4), XVI, 484, (1) di errata, legatura coeva m. pelle marrone con titolo e filetti in oro al dorso. Piatti marmorizzati. 3 tabelle ripiegate f.t. e una tav. incisa f.t. Minime fioriture. Ottimo esemplare. Prima edizione di questa importante monografia sulla chimica dei corpi grassi di origine animale. Lo Chevreul fu il primo a determinare che i grassi sono composti di acidi grassi e glicerolo, facilmente separati dalla saponificazione. "Chevreul’s Recherches is a full account of the chemistry of fats. He had revealed the nature of a large and important class of organic substances and had shown that they were composed of a few chemical species which were amenable to analysis and obeyed the same laws of chemical combination followed by simpler substances in the inorganic realm. The book is a model of complete, exhaustive research in organic chemistry. Few areas of chemistry at this time had been so throughly explored. Although his studies were followed by those of many chemists, who extended the number of fatty acids isolatable from fats and oils, there was no one comparable to Chevreul in this field until Thomas Percy Hilditch, a century later" (D.S.B.). "A classic study of animal fats. Chevreul discovered that fats are composed of fatty acids and glycerol" (Garrison-Morton). Lo Chevreul (Angers, 1786-Parigi, 1789), chimico morto ultracentenario, oltre che per le sue ricerche sugli acidi grassi è celebre per essere stato uno dei pionieri della gerontologia nonché l'inventore delle margarine e per i suoi studi sulla colorazione tessile e sulla luce e il colore. Assistente del Vauquelin al Museo Nazionale di Storia Naturale di Parigi, nel 1830 gli succedette alla cattedra di chimica organica presso lo stesso Museo. Partington, IV, pp. 247-249. Bolton, 365. D.S.B., III, 242-243. Garrison-Morton, 669. En Français dans le Texte, 237: "Il établit que les matières organiques obéissent aux mêmes lois que les composés minéraux". Poggendorff, I, 443. Brunet, I, 1841. Scienziati e tecnologi, I, 306 - 307. "Il principale lavoro di Chevreul si svolse nel campo della chimica organica e nel 1823 pubblicò il risultato di parecchi anni di lavoro sulla teoria della saponificazione. Il lavoro di Chevreul ha fornito la base scientifica ad un' industria la cui espansione era legata all' incremento della produzione di soda". [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        His Royal Highness The Prince Augustus-Frederick, Duke of Sussex, Earl of Inverness, Baron of Arklow, Knight of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, Doctor of the Civil Law, Colonel of the Hon. Artillery Company, President of the Society For the Encouragement of ARTS, &c. And Grand Master of the FREE & ACCEPTED MASONS, IN HIS ROBERS OF ESTATE, His Train borne by Major-General OGG

      (London: John Whittaker, 1823. An exquisite portrait of Prince Augustus Frederick attending the coronation of his brother, George the Fourth Augustus Frederick (1773-1843), Duke of Sussex, was the sixth son of George III, and the most popular member of the Royal Family with the British public. Some of his cultural enthusiasms are indicated in Whittaker's gold printed and monumental title: President of the Society of Arts, Grand Master of the Masons and Doctor of Civil Law. He was later President of the Royal Society (1830-38). He lived at Kensington Palace and amassed a great library of 50,000 volumes. In the coronation procession from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey, he was cheered, a response not accorded all the royal brothers by any means. Prince Augustus Frederick married Lady Augusta Murray in 1793, without parental consent, and the marriage was annulled in 1794, though he continued to live with her until 1801. They had two children. In 1831, he married Lady Cecilia Letitia Buggin, again without Royal or Parliamentary consent. The Duke of Sussex was popular with the public in part because of his opposition to slavery and the Corn Laws, his support of Catholic Emancipation and Parliamentary reform, though these views put him in opposition to several of his brothers, including the two that became King, George and William. He was Victoria's favorite uncle and gave her away at her wedding. This plate comes from "Ceremonial of the Coronation of His Most Sacred Majesty, King George the Fourth". A sumptuous volume produced by Westminster bookbinder and printer, John Whittaker, to commemorate George's coronation. Most of the 40 hand-colored and gold printed plates portray the prime participants in the splendid costumes selected by George for the occasion. The Coronation was the most expensive to date, and it signalled the very different role George played as King in the cultural life of England, with his expansions of Buckingham House and Carlton House, his creation of Brighton Pavilion, the great growth of the Royal Collections. All these were expensive, but were projects and acquisitions befitting a nation that had become an empire. John Whittaker's "Ceremonial" was published in 1823. There were 43 folio sets. The titles on all the plates were printed in gold, using a technique Whittaker had devised to print an edition of the Magna Carta in 1815. The illustrations were by James and Francis Stephanoff and engraved by S. W. Reynolds, William Bennett and others. All were color printed and hand-painted, many with gold embellishments. The elaborate gold printed calligraphy is surmounted with a very handsome insignia that combines the three feathers, symbol of the Prince of Wales and the Regalia of the King, including St. Edward's crown, the three swords of state, mottoes and badges of the Royal Orders, beautifully tooled. Hardie, 69-71; The Royal Collection website; "Coronation of George IV" georgianindex. Hand-coloured aquatint with gold embellishments and gold printed engraving on vellum.

      London: Sir Richard Phillips, 1823. First Edition. 8vo, disbound. 112. A very bright, clean and well preserved copy, partially unopened. RARE. A descriptive account of the author&#146;s experiences as a merchant seaman. Includes some vivid passages about a near-catastrophic gale encountered while sailing from Madras to Cuddalore, and observations on Indian and Chinese cultural practices.<br> &#147;The only edition of this description of a visit to New South Wales in 1818 and one of surprisingly few accounts of a voyage on a convict transport. Cramp explains that the "scarcity of employment in England determined me again to try my fortune abroad". He found a place on the convict transport Tottenham, which struck a reef shortly after leaving Woolwich, and then transferred to the Lady Castlereagh, which at 842 tons was the largest convict ship of its time. Although the descriptions of the two Australian colonies are relatively brief, they are well written and give a good idea of Sydney, Newcastle and Hobart as they appeared to a visitor in the latter years of Macquarie"s governorship. Cramp returned by way of India, since Macquarie had chartered the Lady Castlereagh to transport troops there, but he was again unlucky: he was shipwrecked off India. He eventually reached England in 1821.&#148; See Hordern 2007<br> This volume also contains Count de Forbin&#146;s &#147;Recollections of Sicily&#148;, in which the author extolls the picturesque wonders of Palermo, Syracuse, Mount Etna, and Messina.

        To His Most Excellent Majesty King George the Fourth This Monument of Art Is, By Permission, Most Respectfully Dedicated By His Majesty&#39;s Dutiful, Obedient Servant & Subject John Whittaker

      London: John Whittaker, 1823. A masterful engraving commemorating the coronation of King George the Fourth "The Ceremonial of the Coronation of His Most Sacred Majesty King George the Fourth" was a sumptuously produced series of engravings by James and Francis Stephanoff under the supervision of John Whittaker portraying the principal participants in that coronation. The coronation itself was the most expensive ever financed by the British people. The Prince of Wales was actively involved in every aspect of the ceremony, including the costumes which derived from Elizabethan and Jacobean times. Of particular interest in this plate is St. Edward&#39;s crown held on a cushion in the gloved hands of the Dean of Westminster, John Ireland. The crown, made of gold and silver, is composed of four half arches that join and are surmounted by a cross. The whole was adorned with 1,213 diamonds, which were hired for the coronation but which were returned in 1823 when Parliament refused to buy them. St. Edward&#39;s crown is now adorned, of course, with the Crown Jewels, which give it quite a different character. The Coronation signalled the very different role George played as King in the cultural life of England, in contrast to previous kings and queens, particularly the Hanoverians. With his expansions of Buckingham House and Carlton House, and the Royal Art Collection, as well as his creation of Brighton Pavilion and the National Portrait Gallery, the great growth of the Royal Collections. All these were expensive, but were projects and acquisitions befitting a nation that had become an empire. John Whittaker&#39;s "Ceremonial" was published in 1823. There were 43 sets. The titles on all the plates were printed in gold, using a technique Whittaker had devised to print an edition of the Magna Carta in 1815. The illustrations were by James and Francis Stephanoff, and engraved (using aquatint and mezzotint) by S. W. Reynolds, William Bennett and others. All were color printed and hand-painted, many with rich, gold embellishment. The elaborate gold printed calligraphy is surmounted with a beautiful insignia comprised of St. Edward&#39;s Crown, various other Regalia, including the three Swords of State, the three ostrich feathers, heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales, and ribbons with the motto of the Prince of Wales: Ich Dien (I Serve) and the motto of the King of Great Britain: Dieu et Mon Droit, all exquisitely tooled. Martin Hardie, 69-71; the Royal Collection website; "Coronation of George IV" georgianindex. Hand-coloured aquatint and gold printed engraving on vellum.
